Get Stoked on SUP

This past Saturday the weather was hot and it was a great day to be out on the water showing people how to S.U.P. My first class of the day was at 9 am. Colleen, Jaime, Jason and Malini all came up from the city for their first SUP class. They did an outstanding job and I was really excited to have them out. At 10 am Jen brought a couple of her circuit class ladies, Krista and Julie out for a Paddlefit workout. We paddled hard for an hour and you could really see the work they had done in Jen's circuit class. They both paddled strong and with great technique and core strength. Nice job ladies. Our last class of the day was with local Scott Graham and my sister Shannon. The weather was just getting hotter and both Scott and Shannon picked the paddling up really quickly. They even started to work on their footwork and surf stance. A few swims later and both were ready for Tofino. We had so much fun we ended up hanging out on the boards for most of the afternoon. It was a great day, i had a lot of fun teaching. I am really stoked to see people enjoying themselves so much and learning a new sport. See you on the water. Thanks to Jenn Dickie for all of the great photographs.
